Geography Field Trip – Birmingham

Year 13 geographers enjoyed their final field trip before their exams with a trip to study regeneration and urban change. Students conducted environmental quality surveys in a range of places, from edge of city council estates, to leafy suburbs and inner city melting pots.

 

We spent the afternoon in Birmingham city centre with a walking tour around the many regeneration projects that have taken place since the early nineties. Students experienced the stunning views from the Library rooftop gardens and investigated the positive and negative impacts of the Bullring.

 

After the wilds of Iceland, the trip provided the perfect contrast between the issues within our urban world and our stunning wilderness and physical geography.

 

Best of luck in the exams to all year 13 students!
